BOREHAM REACTION: 'We are building momentum and we are learning' - James Rowe

‘Proud’ James Rowe said Chesterfield are building some ‘momentum’ at the Technique Stadium after beating in-form Boreham Wood to climb above them into second in the National League.

FT: Chesterfield 2 v 1 Boreham Wood

Goals from Danny Rowe (pen) and Kabongo Tshimanga against his former club.

Will Evans sent off late on after pulling a goal back in the second-half.

A big win.

Spireites go second in the National League.

The former Town man has been shown a second yellow card and is sent off in injury time.

Has gone down injured here. Looks like it is his knee. The physio is on. He goes off and come back on again. He is limping.

2-1.

Third Spireites sub - 90 minutes

Kellermann off, McCourt on.

Spireites sub - 87 minutes

Rowe off, Payne on.

I think it was either Maguire or Kerr who made a great block to deny Clifton from close-range.

Three minutes remaining, 2-1.
